Topic: Coaching Parents and Coaching Youth – Two Types of Coaching

Currently there is a need for many kinds of coaches in our world and fortunately some coaches are now using their skills to meet these needs. Join us on December 3rd coaches are using their skills to work with two specific groups: one with parents and one with youth. Our panelists will discuss what training, skills and tools might be used and a sample coaching session will be presented. Whether you’re a curious coach, a parent with concerns or interested in coaching youth, come join us to learn more about this important work. Tanara Bowie will moderate the session.
